Eighteenth Sunday After Pentecost


Novena to St Michael for the Church, 20th – 28th September


New Apostolic Constitution Appears to Formalize the Hijacking of the Synod Process


As this Friday (29th September) is a public holiday, the first Mass will be at 8 am. On Michaelmas (Saturday 29th September) the 10 am Mass will be sung. Please join in the Novena to St Michael for the Church.

Church cleaning day – Saturday, 6th October: volunteers are requested to assist with the cleaning and preparation of the Church and sacristies, in readiness for Cardinal Burke’s visit. We will commence after Benediction at 11 am on Saturday 6th October (First Saturday), and a light lunch will be provided. Please help if you can!

Cardinal Burke’s visit: as you might imagine, we must incur significant costs to bring Cardinal Burke to Australia. It is necessary for him to travel with a priest assistant. Donations to help defray these costs will be gratefully received. Please contact Fr Tattersall if you can assist. After Confirmations and Solemn Pontifical Mass on Sunday 14th October, there will be a picnic BBQ in the Church grounds, before His Eminence gives a public address later in the afternoon. We expect a large number of visitors that day. While food and drink will be available (a donation will be requested), we encourage regular parishioners to bring their own picnic lunch, and perhaps even a contribution in kind for visitors. We are also in need of volunteers to assist with various duties on 14th October. Please contact the Parish Secretary if you can offer your assistance.

Traditional Carmelite Nuns: the forthcoming Australian foundation took a significant step a few days ago, with the announcement that the Nuns have purchased a suitable property for their monastery near Mathoura, in the southern part of the Wilcannia-Forbes Diocese. To support the project or learn more, visit http://carmeljmj.org.au.

Legion of Mary: the Legion meets at Maryvale on Saturdays between 8.45-9.45 am (those attending may wish to hear either the 8 am or 10 am Mass). New members are welcome. Inquiries: Pierre-Henri Berard, .

Catechesis for children and adults is held on Saturdays at 11 am – new attendees are welcome. Please contact Fr Tattersall with any inquiries.

First Holy Communion (Sunday, 16th December): those who wish to have their children make their First Holy Communion (preceded by First Confession) are invited to register as soon as possible, by way of an email to the Secretary. The usual age for first Confession and Holy Communion is 7 or 8. Sacramental preparation will commence in September.
